+ - Sun leaks that ZFS to be a default in OS X Leopard

blankaBrew (1000609) writes "Perhaps overcome with excitement (and forgetting that Apple doesn't like such pre-emptive disclosures), Sun's Jonathan Schwartz announced today at Sun event in Washington D.C. that Apple would be making ZFS "the file system" in Mac OS 10.5 Leopard (video link, requires RealPlayer). In fact, this week you'll see that Apple is announcing at their Worldwide Developer Conference that ZFS has become the file system in Mac OS 10. Rumors of Apple's interest in ZFS began in April 2006, when an OpenSolaris mailing list revealed that Apple had contacted Sun regarding porting ZFS to OS 10. The file system later began making appearances in Leopard builds. ZFS has a long list of improvements over Apple's current file system, Journaled HFS+. More information on ZFS is available at the ZFS homepage and Wikipedia. For live coverage of WWDC (text and photos), you know where to turn."

"We've heard rumors for a while that Apple's forthcoming Leopard operating system will use the next-generation file system called ZFS.

Now it seems to be official. As MacRumors.com notes, Sun Microsystems's Jonathan Schwartz said on Wednesday that the ZFS would be "the file system" for Leopard, succeeding HFS+. ""

Comment: Well I switched to an iBook recently (Score 1) 27

by flonejek (#11114148) Attached to: Sell me on a new Mac whilst I drone on...
I had a 3.2 Ghz P4 at the beginning of the year, with a gig of ram and a 120 Gb hardrive. Its been running linux for a while, but when the time came to get a computer for my sister, the best option I thought would be to get myself a mac and pass it on to her. I still use it occasionally (mainly for BZFlag spanned across 2 19" CRT's, she runs fedora), but I find my iBook perfectly capable of handling the rest of my life. I can even play BZFlag on it, but I'm too slow and sweaty with the trackpad (its 40 degrees Celsius mostly down here in aust).

I find the best thing about getting this iBook is now I'm hooked on learning Objective-C and Cocoa (I've always wanted to learn C), and it performs far snappier than my sisters p4 box even though its only a 1.2ghz g4 (768 megs of ram). The UI's great, and its just a pleasure to use (apart form the fact my hands are too big for the keyboard). If you had the option to get a G5 over a pc, I'd definately go for a G5, the only mac I wouldn't reccomend over a pc at the moment would be a powerbook, the iBook's are better value, and you can get a far sweeter laptop from voodoopc.com.
